For more than 20 years now, The Road has held weekend seminars to encourage, equip, and empower people to live life to the fullest. The founder of what is now known as “The Road” (after working in and around other similar programs) desired to establish a unique, faith-based program with a mission to equip its participants to truly live the abundant life they were created to live. The program operated in those early years, 1995 - 1997, under a couple of different names and was later incorporated in 1998 under the name, “The Road Adventure." The creative games and drills, with some modification over the years, have stood the test of time as thousands have, through this powerful program, found that richer, fuller life we all seek.
The Road has far exceeded all expectations. Since 1995 over 10,000 people have completed the program from our home-base in Richardson, and historical satellite locations in Tyler, Houston, Temple, and Arlington. More than 2,500 marriages have been strengthened/saved; countless thousands of individuals have found healing and purpose; families have been restored; and graduates have gone on to positively impact their workplace, their churches, and their communities. The Road has become a force for change and a difference-maker within the communities of which it has.

"The Road has made so many life-changing experiences in my life it is hard describe. Because of what I learned at The Road, I am able to be the man inside that I tried to make you believe that I was on the outside. From The Road I learned obedience. Being obedient gave me more self- confidence, self-confidence gave me the ability to serve, serving gave me the ability to grow. I have been blessed so much with the tools and gifts I received from my Road. The best blessing I've received is giving back to others all that was so freely given to me."
